Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Got this speaker on Boxing Day and it is hands down amazing connects instantly and the sound quality is superb with just the right amount of bass and that light show is a great feature for a party by the lake and connecting to two or more at the same time really is a great feature will be getting another on ASAP!!!! Great job JBL keep it up!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my JBL Pulse 3!! Buying another one right now I used my friends JBL Flip and was impressed by the connectivity and sound quality was impressive for the size of the speaker. I ordered the Pulse 3 with points through work and just ordered another one. The "party mode" with the JBL Connect app to link up the speakers makes for a pretty legit portable surround system with ridiculous quality, plus the light show is legit for a party at the beach. Buy one, seriously - Great buy :)

Hi. Can't connect my Pulse3 to my Charge3. Is there any solution to this problem? Thank you!

Asked by: Nazzoltan
Unfortunately not. Pulse 3 uses the latest Connect Plus. So you can only connect to the later devices such as another Pulse 3 or the Flip 4. And the Charge 4 when released later this year.

I'm from Turkey and I'm waiting for this speaker for months but still not even a single announcement made by JBL about release date of speaker in European countries. Thanks JBL. Probably we are going to wait until September.
